'Cubes' Garden
A stunning contemporary courtyard. The garden is based on a cubes theme, with a dramatic stainless steel water feature providing the focal point. The planting is simple, bold and perfectly complements the modern style. The garden comprises integral seating to save space and provide a variety of viewpoints.
'Squares' Garden
A chic garden designed for modern living. The garden is divided into three main squares: the slate patio area; the lawn area; and the Cedar deck area. The Red Cedar deck is a striking design with an integral table which allows eight to eat whilst seated on the deck. The deck area hovers above a 'moat' water feature.
Japanese Garden
A beautiful water garden with a Japanese style and feel. A 10m stream cascades through a limestone rockery with many plants and shrubs. Access to the garden is via two large stepping stones over the pond. The back boasts a slightly secluded sunken area with a wildlife pond.
'Triangles' Garden
A contemporary decked roof terrace. The planters, deck and seating are a bespoke design constructed from sustainable African hardwood. The beautiful hardwood is hardwearing and will far outlast softwood alternatives. Planting is designed to provide a natural windbreak. The garden is completely modular to allow access to the roof structure.
Exotic Garden
A garden with a hint of exotic. A gravel area with Mediterranean style planting and a grass area with oriental/exotic style planting. The rockery/stream is the main focal point and combines alpine and shady planting. A children's climbing frame has been specially constructed for the rear of the garden.
'Circles' Garden
A large garden based on a circular theme. This garden comprises many areas of various surfaces. The decked area provides a great entertaining area by the house, and large decking steps lead down to a circular patio. The garden is designed to be child friendly, with a large lawn area providing lots of space for 'play'.
Victorian Garden
A Victorian terraced garden, designed on a challenging slope. Terraced curves designed to lead the eye into the garden. A partially suspended patio to increase garden area.
Formal Garden
A front garden with a slightly formal design. Perennial and shrub planting (based on a white colour scheme) flank the path leading to the front door. The Acer, Apple and Silver Birch trees will add further structure as they mature.
Secret Garden
A garden with two main 'rooms'. A peaceful place to relax, with a pergola to provide some shade and privacy (when the climbing plants have grown more). The use of oak sleepers provides interest, height and useful seating for BBQs.
Garden Rooms
This garden uses various 'rooms' to combine traditional with contemporary. The decked area is angular and modern, incorporating planting areas. The next level is more traditional with a feature stone wall.
Courtyard Garden
A terraced courtyard garden using natural materials throughout. Architecturally interesting, with a hint of Japanese.
Country Garden
A relaxing patio area, with a large, natural stream/pond in keeping with the local countryside. Beautiful stone walls designed to echo the countryside, provide great form, texture and interest.
Classical Garden
A classical design with a beautiful water feature. Reclaimed materials have been used to get an instant weathered and aged look.
Mediterranean Garden
A modern, low maintenance garden with a Mediterranean feel.
Stone Garden
A garden incorporating a beautiful natural stone patio. The Indian sandstone patio is laid in two tones, with warmer stones through the centre designed to lead the eye to the small Japanese maple.
Terraced Garden
A terraced garden on two main levels with a retaining wall. The curved wall is pleasing to the eye and large steps lead up to the main turfed area.
Rock Garden
A patio and rock garden with meandering gravel path. The path is designed to lead the eye into a low-maintenance, rock garden and shrubbery.
Decked Garden
A low maintenance garden, designed with children in mind. An area laid to decking and patio, with the decking and beds designed to blend with the house and conservatory.
